* {{Padding}}: Explored in the online comic ''Carl''. When the page first loads, the comic is two panels long; a button allows the reader to add additional panels one at a time, up to a 52-panel version of the story. Some of the additional panels throw new light on the story, or improve the pacing, while others just stretch it out -- but which are which?

Added DiffLines:

* ContrivedCoincidence: ''The Right Number'' centers on this. The protagonist calls his girlfriend and arranges a date, but mistakenly dials one digit off and calls another woman also expecting a date. By pure coincidence, the new woman happens to look almost exactly like his girlfriend, so much that it takes him a while to realize it's not her. The improbability of this happening is funny to her but serious to him, and he starts to believe he's discovered some grand unifying equation for calculating a person's character.
* CreatorBreakdown: In-universe in ''Uninformed Bob'', which depicts a gag-a-day comic strip written by a cartoonist who slowly goes insane.
* EmptyPilesOfClothing: The final panel of ''Man-Eating Shoes''.
* HeroInsurance: Spoofed in ''Destroy!!'', which consists of nothing but one-frame pages depicting a battle between two superhumans which effectively totals the city around them.
* IronicHell: ''Meadow of the Damned'' features a variety of people whose afterlife is a pleasant meadow, with a variety of small, eternal annoyances; the minor demon in charge of their case assures them that yes, this is Hell. It turns out that [[spoiler:Hell has much worse torments, but those are reserved for people who were much more... ''effective'' sinners]].
* NoEndorHolocaust: Lampooned by ''Destroy!!'', in which two quarreling superheroes demolish most, and finally '''all''', of Manhattan. The punchline: [[spoiler:"Well, at least no one was hurt."]]

* AuthorAvatar: His three non-fiction comics star himself.
* AuthorTract: Justified with ''Understanding Comics'' and its sequels as they aren't meant to be anything else. They're all just long essays in comic book format.

* FourFingeredHands: He had these initially in ''Understanding Comics'', but ''Making Comics'' graduated his design to include an extra finger.
* NerdGlasses
* SelfDeprecation: The final page of ''Understanding Comics'' makes fun of [=McCloud=] for being long-winded and overenthusiastic about his ideas. ''Making Comics'' pokes fun at his putting on weight.
